As you might gather if you have read our previous blog entries, we're off to the Bristol Handbuilt Bicycle Show in about 7 weeks, held in Bristol's Temple Meads it gives Europe's finest frame-builders the change to show off their wares. We will be there (as we normally are) to add a bit of utility to the rather fancy affair.
Construction is now well under way for our show bikes. We are working flat out on the notching welding and alignment of the bike frames. We have a box bike already resting on its wheels while we decide on how to build the body work. (yes, some bikes have body work).
The city bike we're bringing is commissioned by a customer and she has kindly let us bring it to the show to before she takes ownership. It's been very much a joint effort, finished in her choice of colours and very much taking her style of riding into account.
The bikes will be off the the powder coaters soon, the parts bin is filling up, that slight tingle in the belly is growing....the evenings will be getting lighter too, which coming up to show time can only be a good thing.
We are both excited about what we hope to show you in April.
